dual monitor, dual wallpaper

Hello everyone, I have a dual monitor question that hopefully isn't too hard to answer. I think it may pertain to my Xorg.conf file. Under the new Kde, which I have, I used to be able to put a different background image on each monitor. Plus, I was able to do this for each desktop (on multiple desktops). But now, after a re-install, I no longer have the option to select which monitor I want to put the image on. Does anyone have any ideas? I have an ATI nvidia TI4200 video card. My left monitor is a Dell 17 inch LCD which I would like to have the size "1280x1024" and the right monitor is a 15 inch LCD which I would like to have "1024x768". I may not have it set up right. Thanks for the help. Here is my Xorg.conf:
